Getting Better - 1 tube down, many to go
Well, he was awake when we started this picture but drifted off to la la land after his pain meds. He had the left naso tube taken out this afternoon so he was pretty happy about that. Seems like he is progressing well. He is sitting up by himself and using the toilet as needed. No details, but everything seems to be working. Labs have been as good as could be expected - even his liver numbers are coming back to earth. Always seems like something is way up or down after surgery, but he looks pretty good. He's ready to move out of PICU and should get his chest tube taken out tomorrow. It's always a good thing when we can take tubes away.
